If you are a good communicator, with exceptional organisational skills, and comfortable being part of a remote working team, this could be the ideal role for you.
Salary & Contract:
£31,500 per annum pro rata (depending on experience). This is a part-time remote working role, with a 6-month contract and a probation period of 1 month. There is an opportunity to extend the contract period beyond the initial 6 months as well as the possibility for additional work delivering programs across other areas of the business.
Beyond Equality values diversity and inclusion and we have worked to create an application process that is as accessible as possible, however we still recognise that there is maybe more we can do especially for applicants who are minoritised in society, have specific accessibility needs and/or experience discrimination. If this is the case we are both happy and open to discussing better ways to support your candidacy and make this application process as equitable as possible for you.
We’re open to non-conventional experience and expertise. People from communities which traditionally experience discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity or immigration status; women; new parents; people with disabilities and LGBTQI+ people are encouraged to apply.
We are a diverse organisation and welcome everyone but it is important to note that the intersections of your identity will not increase or affect the amount of labour you are asked to do. If you wish to draw on your own lived experiences that will be both encouraged and supported but it is not nor ever will be a prerequisite of this role.
How to Apply:
Submit a CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 'Regional Coordinator - Manchester'
The cover letter should set out how you meet the experience and skills requirements, and include a personal statement about your values and commitment to this work. You should also list any specific knowledge areas where you have deep expertise.
